Add talk page link for pages about to be deleted by Nuke
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

User story: As an administrator, I want to know whether a page I am about to delete with Nuke has a discussion page, so that I can check it to see what content it has and confirm whether it should also be deleted.

Username search
Currently, only a page history link is provided:

We could change the (view history) link to (talk | history), with talk being a red link if the page doesn't exist.

Non-username search
For the view where a pattern (or no username) is input, the text is different:

We should unify this, and could change the line:

PAGETITLE (Created by USERNAME, view changes)

to

PAGETITLE (talk | history) - Created by USERNAME

This would be helpful before working on the parent task, because it will help administrators make informed decisions before selecting the option to delete associated talk pages.

This should only be the case if the page to be deleted is not already itself a discussion page.
